Congratulations to all students who participated in July, 2019!

Join us this summer for our 3-week course and improve your teaching in a fun, friendly, and rigorous environment. Whether you are a brand new music teacher, have years of experience, or are somewhere in between, these courses will help you develop the tools and skills you need to become a better music teacher and musician. Our courses can prepare you for teaching music to Kindergarten through 8th grade and beyond!

Components of Courses

  • Pedagody

    Our pedagogy classes emphasize the sequential teaching of musical elements and techniques of preparing, presenting, and practicing musical concepts and skills using folk song materials

  • Musicianship

    This component is designed to increase the teacher’s musicianship skills (using moveable do) through ear training, sightsinging, music dictation, interval study and arranging of songs.

  • Choral Experience

    Choral Experience enhances individual musicianship skills through singing in the choral ensemble and conducting challenging repertoire appropriate for different levels of choirs in school, religious, and community-based settings. 

  • Folk Song Research

    This component provides techniques for researching and analyzing music from the United States and around the world, involving knowledge of culture, scales, form, text, and other features.


Classes are held Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
